Courageous Conversations

The Division for Equity and Inclusion Courageous Conversations Series Program Grant

The Division for Equity and Inclusion invites UNM members/individuals, organizations, units, programs and departments to submit a proposal for the “Courageous Conversations” program grant.  The purpose of “Courageous Conversations” is to encourage a culture of dialogue and promote a healthy and inclusive campus climate by supporting entities that wish to engage communities in conversations that are relevant and transformative.  “Courageous Conversations” topics must address the issue(s) of diversity, equity, inclusion or inclusive excellence.  Individuals or entities may receive up to $300.00 to cover the cost of their “Courageous Conversation.”  Cost may include but is not limited to: honorariums, promotional materials, equipment, and food. Some restrictions may apply.


  • Your entity’s “Courageous Conversation” is in agreement with the Mission, Vision and Core Values of the Division for Equity and Inclusion.
  • Your “Courageous Conversation” will promote healthy, positive and unifying dialogue.
  • Must be affiliated with UNM.
  • Your “Courageous Conversation” must address an issue of diversity, equity, inclusion or inclusive excellence.
  • You are solely responsible for all logistical aspects of hosting the “Courageous Conversation.”  DEI provides sponsorship and support via funding and is not responsible for executing the “Courageous Conversation.”
  • The Division for Equity and Inclusion is the title sponsor of the “Courageous Conversation.”
